Elton John (74) has made a striking statement about one of his most famous songs, ‘Crocodile Rock’. In his own words, he never wants to play the song again after his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour.
‘Crocodile Rock’ is nevertheless a big crowd favorite. “But I actually wrote it as a joke,” Elton John recalls. “Suddenly everyone thought it was a great song and it became a worldwide hit. So yeah, who was I to say I didn’t really want to play it? I am an entertainer and I make music to amuse people. Still, the last time I play that song I’ll probably throw a party ”, he confesses. And that last time will come in 2023, when his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour (which has already been postponed several times due to the corona crisis) comes to an end. “Then it will have been enough by now, yes.”
